between himself and michele bachmann. >> big difference between talking and getting stuff done. and i get stuff done. >> it's the latest chantner the rivalry of the two minnesota candidates for the republican presidential nomination, which boiled over yesterday, with pawlenty having spent almost two weeks saying bachmann has no congressional accomplishments to speak of, bachmann had enough. in a sunday statement, she fired back saying "i've fought against irresponsible spending while governor pawlenty was leading a multimillion dollar budget mess in minnesota." later the bachmann campaign added on healthcare mandates, climate change and wall street bail-outs there's very little daylight between governor pawlenty's record and the obama administration's." this back and forth comes with pawlenty still trailing bachmann in the polls. for bachmann, the verbal sparring seems to come with at least some risk. it will likely draw even more attention to the iowa straw poll, less than three weeks away, and pawlenty seems to have the advantage of a larger, deeper iowa organization. the straw poll bal
point. that's not a big deal. a lot of that is tied to greece and not what's happening in washington, is it not? >> reporter: let's put this into perspective. broadly speaking you could say the following. if there is no deal on this debt problem by that deadline in early august, if there is no deal you will probably see the stock market retreat big time. if surprise surprise there is a deal, and the debt ceiling is raids and we borrow some more money and we don't default, you can expect stocks to go straight up. that's the situation we are in. what i'm saying is you are going to see an awful lot of up and down with your money hour by hour. that's the way this week is going to be. bill: stuart varney. u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton is saying she is sure a debt deal with be reached. >> i'm confident congress will do the right thing and secure a deal on the debt ceiling. and work with president obama to take the steps necessary to improve our long-term fiscal outlook. bill: no coincidence she made those comments in hong kong. can both side make a deal? senator ron johnson, a ne
to make a statement so big that it could not be misunderstood. finally, there was one warning sign that is coming out now. the intelligence officials in norway apparently saw a red flag when he ordered large amounts of chemicals from a company online from poland. it did put up that red flag. they checked into it. apparently did not think anything of it. there had been -- he been big lots of fertilizer, but he rented a farm and planned that well. so he got away with. >> shepard: greg burke, thank you. continued coverage of the stunning attack. we'll talk live with a former fbi agent who supervised the federal task force to capture the unabomber. what he says about how the gunman in this case carried out the massacre. and why it is so hard to stop this kind of terrorism. that's minutes away. >> first, washington, politics and the debt ceiling debate. they are at it again. it is almost all politics. there's a little more than a week left before the u.s. hits its borrowing limit the 2nd of august the u.s. will default on all of its loans. everyone has different ideas. politicians from
a gun, geraldo, you don't have security. i have a big laugh when they asked me for a security guard. they don't want him to have a gun. don't want to have security, don't have a gun, not having security. i laugh about people hire our company don't want armed people. what good is security? >> geraldo: 93 dead in norway. guess what the maximum sentence this guy is facing. >> is he probably facing six years and eating sardines or something. that's a very liberal country. we know about that. >> there is no death penalty in norway. and the maximum jail time is 21 years and they can't run consecutively so 21 years, this 32-year-old perpetrator is facing 21 years. >> to look at that and look at the bodies that were laying on the coastal line there. and these people were just slaughtered. there for 90 minutes, geraldo. what kills me is that this is the labor party's group there. wouldn't you put some kind of protection just for these kids? if they got hurt there, how would you then, the medevac somebody over there. >> the legend of the peaceful country is shown to be very naive. bo, i will
the important thing, no tax increases this is a big development in this budget story. [ talking over each other ] >> neil: you are making the assumption that there isn't an add-oncoming. you are right, the deal itself, [ talking over each other ] >> neil: don't jump the again. more than a trillion coming out of the wars. republicans have factored in that math as well. do you think given your point of view, that others will jump onboard of as the best thing out there? >> i think this is the basis for a deal. we have to jiggle the numbers, you are right. a lot of numbers in reid's budget proposal are phony. i think it is significant. weeks ago, harry reid put forward a budget with two trillion of tax increases, now he's at zero, that's a big deal. >> neil: we've been mentioning the markets and how they've held on. is that because they are factoring in a deal at the last minute or that they are okay, no matter what happens? >> i think the market has come to the perception we will have a deal. i think we are going to get a deal within 48 hours of august 2nd. if we don't get that deal before august

hikes as well. >> that's the big sacrifice? one of their big cuts is a trillion dollars out of the defense budget because they figured out that the iraq war is winding down so afghanistan is also winding down and that's the trillion dollars they thought they'd save but they don't list anything with the harry reid plan and not to look at entitlements, how could you possibly say we're taking a hard look and making tough decision abouts the future of our -- of the country economically and not look at entitlements when even the president of the united states has had a problem. let's look at john boehner. he says, all right, i'll raise the debt ceiling. this is what i mean by a two phased plan. just a trillion dollars and we'll have $1.2 trillion in cuts by the end of the year. the future cuts will be commissioned and sent up after they commission a bipartisan panel to decide, you know, republicans or democrats to decide which will be cut and what shouldn't. >> and apparently, it would be along the lines of the cut, cap and balance as you can see right there. here is something th
here. incredible this country is not that big, only 5 million people, so such a massive attack has really taken its toll. as someone was telling me this morning, everybody knows somebody, that knows somebody or is related to them. the kids in the camp were womaning from all over the country. finally, jenna, it's very sad in so much of these parts the judge saying after tharbg the hearing waafter that, the hearing was closed and but he came out and talked a little bit about it. he said he was not interested in the number of people he had to kill, he just wanted to make a statement. he certainly did that. jenna: certainly indeed and sad as you say, greg. more developments as we get them from norway, greg burke, thank you. jon: we still have debt deadlock on capitol hill with the default deadline just eight days away now. congressional leaders are still struggling to hammer out some kind of a deal, one that would raise the limit on our nation's credit card while cutting trillions of dollars in spending. house speaker john boehner may unveil his own bill today. harry reid said it would

. there was a moment in time when president obama was talking about doing big things and being the guy and turnin turning this into a much needed win by a beleaguered president. we are seeing this fade away, we are seeing the administration give control of this discussion to capitol hill, just like with other things. martha: as you say, in previous confrontations when it came to healthcare, stimulus, all of that got pwubgd back to congress to work out the details. he looked like he wanted to be out in front of this. why do you think he changed his mind? >> reporter: it's really hard. being president is really hard but also doing a deal like this is really hard because the scope of what you're talking about isn't -- this isn't about money. we heard over the w weekend, or it's 400 billion on this or 800 billion on that, there is a chasm which exists between the republicans and the house, the conservatives from 2010 and president obama who is puerto rico the hreu ral wing of the democratic party and his victory in 2008. there is a rubber game that needs to be played here, that is the 2012 election a
, but they are big on talent. back by popular demand, the sleepy band banjo boys. ladies and gentlemen, governor mike huckabee. >> thank you. thank you very much. great audience. welcome to huckabee from the fox news studios in new york city. some nut group called freedom from religion has their antenna up because the governor of texas is calling for a day of prayer. now, even though taxpayers aren't paying for any of it, this group is suing to stop it. look, it is one thing to express some cynicism as to whether the timing for a highly publicized prayer event is a precursor to an announcement the governor wants to run for president, but i cannot understand why people who don't even believe in god and hate religion are so afraid of it. if they really think prayer is a worth less and meaning less exercise in futility, then wouldn't they want believers praying more? it would keep them busy doing something harmless instead of going out to the streets scream ling for pedestrians to repent. let's say i plan on messing them up. i will pray for them. they need the prayers, and i need the practice. another s
